Part 1 of 3

Members of the Project 21 Black Leadership Network applaud the Trump Administration for seeking to defund all federal training rooted in "critical race theory," a radical philosophy promoting a false notion of systemic American racism, pitting races against each other.

Horace Cooper is a frequent guest on The What’s UP Radio Program and many other radio and television talk shows across America. He taught Constitutional Law at George Mason University in Virginia and was a senior counsel to US House Majority Leader Dick Armey. Horace is the co-chairman of the Project 21 National Advisory Board and a legal commentator.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why is President Trump seeking to defund all federal training rooted in “critical race theory”?

Does critical race theory claim that people (mainly white men) have characteristics and behaviors due solely to their race? Is it in our DNA?

Does critical race theory encourage and even bully people (mainly white men) into admitting they are bigots and racists? Horace response: “This is a terribly evil idea! It is not different than what happened in apartheid and Jim Crowe.

Did Congress pass the law requiring government employees to participate in critical race theory training seminars? HINT: Nope! Then why are they forced to?!?!

How much do these training seminars cost? HINT: It’s A LOT!

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Can the federal employee training sessions performed by outside contractors be cancelled? Horace explains what will happen on October 1, 2020.

Is the methodology of critical race theory and the ideology of antiracism dangerous?

Is critical race theory based on the premise that all white people are racists and unequally privileged as compared to black Americans? Horace says this is “mostly accurate”. Which part is not?

Are there more interracial marriages and births now than ever before?

Have complaints of racism and bigotry in the workplace dropped significantly in recent years?

Are more minority students going to college than ever before?

Are race-based hate crimes at an all-time low? (This does not include crimes against Jews, which is actually higher.)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are black Americans powerless in improving their lives without government help? Horace discusses success strategies that have worked time and time again. He says: “Black Americans, like white Americans and the rest of the country, have within their own power the ability to adopt these success strategies and achieve accordingly.

Should President Trump be commended and congratulated for wanting to cancel these training sessions?

Today’s Psalms for Living devotion is from Psalm 127:1-2

What is your house built on? Are you trying too hard on your own to guide your spouse and children? Do you rely too much on your own ability in your career choices? Today’s Psalm is a reminder that God is in control.

Mark Lanier has some encouragement for us during the Coronavirus quarantine.


Mark uses his little dog, Tizzie, as an example in today’s devotion. Click the link below to see this cute doggy. Why does Mark’s family love her so much? Is she “just a dog” or a true part of the family?

Wherever your treasure is, there you’ll find your heart.”

What is your treasure? What do you love? What are your worries? What are you anxious about? Mark reminds us to seek first the Kingdom of God.

Scripture Reference: Matthew 6:21

Day 5

Did you know that God has given us the tools we need to make this life enjoyable? That is the theme of this week’s “table talk” between Mark Lanier and CFBC Pastor Stephen Trammell.

If you have a prayer request, need Scripture encouragement, or would like a copy of Mark’s lessons each week, email wantmore@biblical-literacy.org

Questions/Issues Discussed:

People cannot live on Chick-fil-A and Mexican Food. We wish we could, but we can’t! We need a balanced diet. Mark reminds us that we need ALL four levels of relationships (personal, one-on-one with an accountability partner, small groups, and church fellowship) in order to grow in our walk with God.

Pastor Trammell uses this last segment today to review the four levels:
Personal: This will inform every other relationship.
One-On-One: Become a friend.
Small Groups: Find one with people your age group and life stage.
Church Fellowship: Use Google to find a church near!

Day 5

Pastor Ed Ethridge continues in the sermon series on James with his sermon “Controlling the Tongue”.

Find Pastor Ed’s sermon here

Scripture Passage: James 3:1-12

Questions/Issues Discussed:

How can you have a tongue that glorifies the Lord without being in the Word on a daily basis? Pastor Ed says you can’t! He references Colossians 4:6 and Matthew 5.

Pastor Ed wants you to remember and practice saying these 18 words:
Thank you
I’m sorry
I love you
I was wrong
Please forgive me
I’m praying for you

Final Thoughts: The tongue must be controlled, corralled, and cleansed.

Final Scripture: Proverbs 25:22
